At the end of the long conference, the Lambert students of FBLA emerge triumphant, with many awards and various recognition for their hard work.

On March 6th, the Lambert FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) ventured to the Georgia FBLA State Leadership Conference in Athens, Georgia. Georgia FBLA is the premier organization for Georgia’s student leaders interested in business careers and is over 25,000 members strong.

The conference brought high school FBLA chapters together to compete in their competitive events programs and to attend workshops to enhance their understanding and skills for the facets of leadership and business. It lasted from Sunday March 6th, to Tuesday March 8th.

At the conference, the Lambert FBLA was awarded Largest Local Chapter ever in the history of Georgia FBLA. They also received a superior rating (Gold Chapter), and placed 10th for Chapter of the Year.

Member Royce Dickerson presented his campaign, “Roll With Royce”, and it was so well received over the weekend, he was named the new Georgia FBLA State President for the 2016-2017 school year. Royce will be taking on this new executive role and represents Lambert High School, Forsyth County, and Georgia FBLA at state and national levels.

Another member, D J Barber, was named a Region Officer for Georgia FBLA Region 11 for the ’16-17 school year.
